Road restrictions in the West Bank

Israeli supreme court orders opening of highway closed to Palestinians.

    Roads in the occupied Palestinian Territories are vital arteries connecting West Bank towns and villages.

    But major routes have been closed off to tens of thousands of Palestinians, for the benefit of a handful of Israeli settlers.

    Now, in the first ruling of its kind, Israel's supreme court has ordered the army to open up a West Bank highway to Palestinian traffic again.
